I have been thinking a lot lately about how people generally don't seem to think of the Supreme Court of the United States as a target of feedback campaigns or demonstrations. In theory, the Court is supposed to operate outside the sphere of political public influence, that of the other two branches of government and of the citizenry at large. On the other hand, the justices and their clerks do read newspapers and watch TV... and presumably even read weblogs. I'll be giving some thought to directing some concentrated attention on SCOTUS; and in addition, I'd be interested in any opinions regarding massive demonstrations on the Supreme Courthouse steps.
